Sounds like the TV needs major convergence alignment and possibly a a full color scale adjustment. Projection TV's have the most alignment issues. Since I don't know manufacturer I can only give you general ideas. Most projection TV's have either auto or manual alignments which can be accesed through the menu. However the adjustments may be tricky to get to. Once convergence is done if video is still red you will need to get in the TV and set up biasing levels on each tube. Hopefully the tubes are just slightly degraded and can be readjusted for a nice quality image.
I suggest finding a local guy and asking him to possibly do a quick a;ignment for a fixed price.
Good luck

I have a Sony TV model KDL-40BX412. There is a red ghost. Sometimes it is green. The longer the TV is on, the distance between the image and the ghost decreases, but never disappears.


Contact the authorized service centre for Sony. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Ghost like shadows


It seems your TV Samsung HCM4215W has problem in convergence board and need to be replaced.
You can get that board from Parts Store on $76
If you have bit electronics knowledge and know how about tv repair, you can replace it by yourself or get help of local tv tech person.

Shadowing


GOOD DAY ND GOOD LUCK;

TRY THIS, IT WILL CORRECT CONCERN:

50V500 ONLY
GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image.
CONDITION:
A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture. Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray. Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture.
CORRECTION:

To correct the problem, please do as follows:
  1. Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
  1. To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.
03b_ghost_image01.gif Figure 1
  1. BEFORE CONTINUING: CONFIRM THAT THE R, G and B DRIVE ARE SET AT 40.
  • Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.


  1. Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
03b_ghost_image02.gif Figure 2
  1. Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once. The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
  2. Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3. You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).

Figure 3

  1. If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
  2. Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
  3. Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
  4. Adjustment is completed
  5. I HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL, big IRISH.

If you want to adjust focus and screen there is a focus block some sets they can be found on the front behind the gril then behind a cut out held in place by screws if not check from the rear. But a ghost like you say sounds like a convergence problem

Yes, it called ghost image. You can try to go in the service menu, and scroll to ghost image. Turn tv off, wait till red light stops blinking, and then on the remote press the input button. at the same time press the power button on the tv. this should put you in the service mode. If nervous about this call tech assist at Hittachi.

PLEASE HELP (Three Ghost Images)


You will need to have or change the convergence correction driver IC's. There are two of them in this TV set. Not a fix for a novice I'm afraid. If you have no solid state repair experience, play it safe and call out a pro to assist you in this repair.
